An Europallet is a wooden pallet with the dimensions and specifications that have been established by the European Pallet Association (EPAL). The dimensions are 800 x 1200 mm., with a clearance height of 90 mm. The load capacity is ± 1500 kg. The pallet can be recognized by the blocks: on the left and right block is highlighted: 'EUR', 'EPAL' or 'UIC', on the middle block is the name of the manufacturer or client.
UIC, the partnership of European railway companies, developed a pallet after the Second World War to make loading freight wagons easier. This was officially called the EUR pallet, but became known as the Euro pallet. The national railway companies supervised the production, sorting, distribution and repair of the pallets (Source: Wikipedia)
